Well Ian is back in his room....starting to recover....everything went okay. They did the bronchoscopy and PICC line in the OR. They were not able to place the ND-tube in the OR so they placed NG tube. The bronchoscopy results...they did not find as much mucous as they were hoping; they did get a good amount out. His right lung looked good and healthy, however his left lung not so much. It was brittle, delicate and floppy; meaning...it needs more pressure to open it back up. They were able to place the ND tube when he got back into his room. He is currently intubated and relatively calm. They are planning on trying to extubate him later this afternoon depending on how he is doing....as the doctor said....Ian will take the lead and we will follow him.
Again thank you again for all the texts, emails and calls.
